Juventus created another sensation in the 1/8-final phase of the Champions League. The Italian champion won a 3 : 0 defeat against Atletico Madrid and thrown the
“Duschekchiite” from the tournament with a total score of 3 : 2. The great hero of the Allianz Stadio hosts was the champion of the Champions League, Cristiano Ronaldo. The Portuguese played another brilliant match in this tournament and scored all three goals for the success of his team. He opened the score in the 27th minute, then doubled in the 48th and finally shaped his hat-trick in the 86th minute of the penalty. Cristiano was drawn to Torino to make similar matches and the huge investment began to pay off. The success of “The Old Lady” is historic because it breaks the negative tradition that the team always drops off when losing the first match with 0 : 2. Meanwhile, Atletico is eliminating the tournament for the first time after defeating the first home game.
Massimiliano Allegra bet on Cristiano Ronaldo, Mario Manjukic and Federico Bernardeski in the attack. In the middle of the pitch, Bles Matthew, Miralem Pianist, and Emre Zhang were in action.
The guests had chosen Alvaro Morata and Antoine Grizzman to take the lead. They had the support of Toma Lemar and Coke on both wings.
Juventus started the game aggressively and in the 4th minute managed to score a goal through Giorgio Chiellini, but was not booked due to a violation of Cristiano Ronaldo against goalkeeper Jan Cloud. Even after VAR’s intervention, Judge Bjorn Kafers did not change his mind.
The hosts continued to have a territorial advantage in the next few minutes, but the “Duchesschachi” acted tightly in their half and did not allow any position at the door. Meanwhile, in the 22nd minute, Coke made a powerful shot that crashed inches over the door of Wojciech Szczesny.
In the 24th minute, Antoine Greizman made the Polish guard with a diagonal shot of the penalty area, and Shchessi was not convincing under the frame, but to his luck was an ambush of Alvaro Morata.
In the 27th minute, Juventus opened the score. Federico Bernardesky is centering in the penalty area, where Ronaldo rose and close to his head and managed to squeeze the ball into the goal.
The hosts had a new good opportunity in the 32nd minute. Then they received a foul in a convenient position in front of the penalty area. Bernardesky executed the penalty but sent the ball over the door.
In the 35th minute, Bernardesky was again the main actor, trying a shot with scissors, but to his regret, the ball again did not fall into the outline.
In the 42nd minute, Ronaldo could double his goal in almost identical fashion. This time he was found centered by Leonardo Spinazola on the left, but the Portuguese shot was inaccurate.
In the 44th minute, Jan Cloud was sent off for a goal after a brilliant shot with Giorgio Chiellini’s head after a corner kick, but the guard was brilliant and killed.
In the added time of the first part, Atletico had one of the best positions so far. Alvaro Morata was dropped into the penalty area and shot close at the goal but close to the goal.
Already at the start of the second half, Juve reached a second goal and again was Cristiano Ronaldo. In the 48th minute the Portuguese star headed again, the first time his shot was slaughtered by Jan Cloud, but the technology of the goalie showed that despite the cat’s reflex on the goalie, the ball has entered with his whole volume in the door and so Bjorn Kefers pointed to the center and the score was 2 : 0.
In the 62nd minute, Korea advanced with a ball to his feet and tried a distant shot that was not far from the target but still crossed the door.
In the 67th minute, Massimiliano Allegri made an interesting rockage, releasing Paulo Dybala in place of Leonardo Spinazola.
In the next few minutes, the game became more positional. As if both teams started thinking more about how to keep their own door.
In the 82nd minute Juve managed to organize a quick counterattack, Moye Keene came out behind the defense but his shot passed the door.
In the 85th minute, Federico Bernardeski advanced on the left, as he raced in the penalty box where he was shot down. Cristiano Ronaldo took on the penalty kick and ruthlessly realized for 3 : 0. That was his 8th hat trick in the tournament, with 61 hits in the elimination phase. In addition, his account against the “Duschekchiite” swelled to 24 goals in their goal.
So Juventus managed to make a historic turn and eliminate Atletico Madrid from the tournament. The Spaniards may feel sorry for their lead, but today they were just the weaker team.
